TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- AJ McCarron passed for 208 yards and two touchdowns and No. 1 Alabama reached the end zone on its first three possessions in a 38-7 victory over No. 11 Mississippi State on Saturday night.
The Crimson Tide (8-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) quickly turned the meeting of unbeaten SEC West teams into a mismatch, rolling toward a national title game rematch at No. 6 LSU. The Bulldogs (7-1, 3-1) came in averaging 36.7 points a game but didn't score until the final minutes.
They had been leading the nation in turnover margin but lost two fumbles and an interception.
McCarron completed 16 of 23 passes before sitting out the fourth quarter. He headed to the locker room briefly early in the quarter briefly but returned to the sideline.
The Tide has now won the past five meetings and this one turned into more of the same, despite considerably more hype.

It’s homecoming in Tuscaloosa, Alabama this weekend and that means the locals are about to throw the best damn parade in the SEC. The school will announce a 2012 homecoming queen, hold a pep rally bonfire tonight on campus (full festivities can be found here) and allow die hard Bama fans a chance to show just how crazy they are about the Crimson Tide. Take Bama fan Ray Hornsby...
An Alabama fan was nice enough to send us some pictures of him voting for Nick Saban of the Alabama Crimson Tide for the President of The United States of America. He asked that we please post this note due to some technical errors. We try and avoid politics at all costs on this site but this was way too good not to post. Hopefully AJ McCarron can be Secretary of State and Eddie...

They wont be the dominant forces on the Tiger Stadium turf when No. 1 Alabama and No. 5 LSU collide Saturday night. That designation would fall on the defenses, which are ranked first (Crimson Tide) and third (Tigers) in the nation.
But for Alabama QB A.J. McCarron and his counterpart, Zach Mettenberger, this could be a defining game.
McCarron has been quietly building steam as...
